There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe. Our lovely Eva is amongst those brave souls fighting every day. She was diagnosed in 2013, not long after entering our lives. Our family had no idea what it meant to have cystic fibrosis. We had to adjust really quickly to accommodate Eva’s needs on this journey. Who knew how smart, funny, independent, and strong Eva would be. She pushes herself to face every obstacle that is put in front of her. Her bright spirit shines through any tough day. She knows she has so much love and support from her family and friends. Anyone around her will feel her light and strength.
So we aren’t just walking for Eva but for everyone with CF. Will you join us? All we need you to do to become a member of our team is click on the "Join our Team" button. From there you can make a donation as big or small and start your fundraising.
By becoming a member of our team and making a donation, you are joining a growing group of people committed to finding a cure for cystic fibrosis. Together, we are adding tomorrows to the lives of people living with CF by supporting the search for a cure.
Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families. Thank you for your support! -The Johnson Family
Important note on Attendance at Foundation Events:
Infections can exacerbate CF symptoms and worsen lung function, so we ask attendees at Foundation-sponsored events to observe the following best practices to reduce the risk of germ transmission:
Regularly wash hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel.
Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your inner elbow.
Maintain a safe 6-foot distance from anyone with a cold or infection.
To further reduce the risk of cross-infection, the Foundation’s attendance policy recommends that all people with CF maintain a safe 6-foot distance from each other at all times while attending an outdoor Foundation-sponsored event. All Great Strides walks are non-smoking events.
